I put a blast tube on my John Deere voltage regulator which is mounted using heat conductive paste in the original firewall shelf location. I also installed a thermocouple on the regulator and monitor the temperature on the Dynon D-180. The maximum temperature I have seen is 155 degrees F on an 85 degree F day. That maximum temperature occurs after takeoff when the battery is recharging after engine start.
